my pcr product is larger than expected

I'm very new to PCR and sequencing, I'm amplyfing a gene of size 560 pb, using published primers, however my product is always larger, I sequenced my product with the same set of primers and I obtained product of 830 bp.

You can also check the primers with PrimerBLAST, if you didn't do that already (both genomic and RefSeq mRNA databases) and see if you get something matching your product length.
